This year, the CCNS Art Show and Sale will run for three busy days: June 1-3, 2017.

The 2017 Art Show Featured Artist is one of the world's leading marine artists, Rinaldo Skalamera.  Born in Croatia and based in Fort Lee, NJ, Skalamera is a master of realism.  His art has won numerous awards, and sell quickly into private and corporate collections.  

“This year, we may have the highest caliber of artists we've ever had.  The breadth and depth of artwork showcases a masterful range of talent.  We are also excited by the return of so many artists who continue to support our show, and by the inclusion of new artists, both domestic and international, who will be joining us this year", said Andre Parris, CCNS Art Show Co-Chair. “It is hard to believe that this show is now in its 55th year and has grown into one of the largest and most varied art shows in our region, offering something for all tastes and budgets."

“This year’s Featured Artist, Rinaldo Skalamera, is truly a master of both realism and marine art.  Through a combination of color, meticulous detail, and a sense of the dramatic, you feel as if you are on board one of his boats”, noted Alex Murphy, CCNS Art Show Co-Chair.  “We feel really lucky that Rinaldo will be the Featured Artist at this year's show and given that we are a maritime community, we're confident that the original works he is creating for our show will be hugely popular with buyers and patrons”.
